SIDE NOTES:

~ This is another tasty yogurt combination my kids like. Sometimes it’s breakfast, sometimes lunch, & sometimes a snack.

~  Careful choosing packaged granola.  Some are gluten free, others aren’t.  They all contain sugar – some a little, some a lot. Some companies use natural sugar, others, highly refined.  Some have a ton of less than desirable ingredients.  Choose wisely!

~ Likewise, yogurt is marketed as a health food, but almost all varieties you’ll find at the store are much less than that – with several undesirable additives. The way around this is to buy plain yogurt without any additives and add your own natural sweetener (and fruit if you’d like).

~ To avoid confusion…..If you look at the label of plain yogurt, you might wonder why there are 11 or 12 grams of sugar in it if it claims to be unsweetened. This is just the naturally occurring lactose from the milk (used to make the yogurt).

For those avoiding certain foods, this recipe falls into the following categories:

Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Egg Free, Nut Free, Sugar Free, Grain Free, Vegan, Raw

Can use a dairy free yogurt if need be. Likewise, there are gluten & nut free granolas available or you can choose to make your own (see links below).

~ If you’d like to try making your own granola, these delicious recipes are both gluten & nut free: MAPLE-CINNAMON-CRUNCH-CEREAL OR CHOCOLATE-CRUNCH-CEREAL
